Re: Saxon VS XT
I believe I've shown that I understand what Paul Tchistopolskii is saying. The discussion is now down to the issue of portability. I said: >> My larger objection to what you say is that you are >> foreclosing one of the benefits of standards: portability >> of code, stylesheets in this case. If you wanted to grab >> any pieces of XSLT code off The Net or whatever, that code >> may be conformant but require features that XT doesn't >> have. To which Paul asks: >Are you saying there is something reasonable out >there written in XSLT and it is using some features >which are missing in XT ? I suppose I am, but I was also raising the idea that conformant stylesheets, reasonable or otherwise, would be freely exchanged in discussions on this list. Paul continues: >Could you please provide the url ? And then I'l tell >you how long it took me to port that masterpice to XT. Once again, Paul changes the discussion from (Java + XT) to (PaulT + Java + XT). My point is that NOBODY should spend ANY time porting the conformant XSLT. The whole ideal of the standards movement is to avoid such porting. On this list, achievement of that ideal will be seen when all the responses asking "Which processor are you using?" become unnecessary. We will build a community of understanding around the full syntax of XSLT, as specified in the W3C recommendation. .................David Marston XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
